Pellicano case closed?

Latest indictment merely adds details

Initially dubbed one of Hollywood’s biggest scandals, the Anthony Pellicano wiretapping affair is landing with a thud.

A Feb. 15 Los Angeles Times story declared that prosecutors had filed “the latest and perhaps final federal indictment” in the case. But no one new was charged; the indictment merely adds more details of Pellicano’s alleged wiretapping, including how he conspired with attorney Terry Christensen to tap the ex-wife of Kirk Kerkorian.

The Times, the New York Times and other pubs have spent countless hours and ink on the story. But outside of Pellicano, Christensen and director John McTiernan, no other major Hollywood figures have been swept up in the case.

Pellicano and Christensen have plead not guilty, and their attorneys say the feds are bringing meaningless charges against their clients. Pellicano’s trial is scheduled to begin this summer.
